Hi, I found about five of these bugs in my house ,they where mostly in a notebook that was on the floor. We live in a first floor apartment in Austin ,Tx.
Today is Nov , 8th , 2011 , there was a high of 75
degrees , it was rainy and cloudy today.
not sure if then rain could have caused them to come in the house or not.

Smoky Brown Cockroach Nymph

Dear Joe,
This is an immature Cockroach, and we believe we have correctly identified it as the nymph of a Smoky Brown Cockroach,
Periplaneta fuliginosa, which we identified on BugGuide which states:  “Early instars are black insects with characteristic white markings on the distal antenae, proximal antennae, thorax and abdomen”.
